Elise is based in California, and has traveled the world gaining inspiration for her work. Her most recent series, Bathing Beauties, which captures the human form and abstracts it through light and reflection, was inspired by the vintage elegance and history of Southeast Asia’s historic hotel pools and gardens. It evokes a bygone era when Ernest Hemingway and Jackie O were among the clientele.
Elise has shown in galleries throughout the US and Asia. Her work has appeared in GQ Magazine, Architectural Digest, Dwell, California Home, and People to name a few. Her paintings hang in luxury properties such as The Ritz Carlton, Hard Rock Hotel, and the Hilton across the US and are held in private collections by many celebrities.
